Steve Gadd says it:
“I’m still practicing, because I’m into it; because this thing interests me (and) if you can do it together it’s even more fun.”

OUR TRIBE IS A VARIED ONE
From jazzers, metalheads to electro avant-guardistes and 2&4 pop-rockers. It is an open and inclusive place and there are many different reasons why you should join.
Under the guidance of Guillaume, your session master:
PRACTICE AND BUILD TOGETHER
LEARN FROM ONE ANOTHER
SUPPORT EACH OTHER
Drumdrill helps you generate a new pulse to your practice.
It is a friendly and ego free community and a great way of keeping your hands and your head healthy.
All it requires is that you take part.
You only need your pad, your sticks and an internet connection.
YOU SHOW UP, WE DO IT.
TURN UP Anyone can watch tutorials on Youtube or Instagram but connecting and being part of a tribe of drummers is inspiring.
Belonging to our group fuels action. We help create positive habits. You get some great work done and it’s fun.
You turn up, we do it.
DRILL IT Together, we set the tone. What and how you practice is key. We focus on the right stuff and in the right way so that it brings meaningful changes to your mindset, your practising and your playing. We think music, we think drums. We keep it fresh and it’s transformative for your head, your ears and your hands.
REPEAT Having a routine practicing technical fundamentals directly applicable and musically useful is exciting, motivating and very rewarding. It leads to concrete results and makes you sound better.
Grab your pad, we’ll do it together.
It’s all about music not practice pad Olympics.
HOW WE DO IT
We hold 3 types of online sessions:
The official sessions lead by Guillaume.
60min of focused practice and interaction. Currently 3 times a week on:
TUESDAY, 9:30am GMT*
WEDNESDAY, 9:30am GMT*
FRIDAY, 9:30am GMT*
*Times may vary
We help each other.
Members can setup their own live sessions within the privacy of the network. You choose your time and your place and lead your own practice session how you see fit.
It can be nerve-racking at first but it is a great way to help you commit to regular practice and well worth the boost of confidence you’ll get from it!
We bring big name guests to co-host. These are open to public and members can get priority access at a discounted rate.
Each session is unique and typically runs through these four categories:
Simple sticking and accent patterns, stretching the muscles.
From classic Stick Control ideas to focused drills and routines.
Tommy Igoe’s Lifetime Warmup is often on the menu here.
Everything Paradiddles, Flams, Drags, Rolls and Ruffs.
We drill through one particular family of rudiment and explore
the stickings as much as accent patterns or placement variations.
Strengthening and stretching our inner clock.
Getting the brain and the ears going with challenging rhythmic and timing concepts.
Grid, subdivisions, permutations, groupings and odd phrasing…
Learning written pieces from Gary Chaffee, Joe Morello, Ted Reed,
Gary Chester, Steve Gadd, Charley Wilcoxon…and even making
our own based on songs we like.

‘Hey dude, I just wanted to write and say man, thank you so much for all these zoom sessions. They really do brighten my day and I look forward to all of them – whilst at the time – enjoying the shit out of them, every time. I have wanted for a long time to do something like this and theses sessions are number one priority in my (now) daily routine. Thank you. You do a f***** great job and I love the challenges. And honestly, the “faster is better” joke is hilarious – don’t stop saying it ? makes me chuckle everytime!
Stay safe and…play faster.’
‘I just have to say man. Thank You. I’m feeling fresher, more positive, and excited to drum every day. This is a chapter in my life I’ll never forget and always be thankful for. Thanks for setting this up whenever ya did, delighted to be a part of it.’
‘This beautiful bunch of drum nerds have kept it all amazing during lockdowns […] I have been enjoying it for months and I can’t begin to describe the improvements both mentally and physically. There is no ego, just ideas, sharing and banter. If you are a drummer or even just interested in drumming: Get zooming. It is not about being great or anything, just about drumming and having fun.’
Adam Coad – Sun Rising
‘Loving your work G
Just wanted to say that I’m really enjoying the drum hangs.
You’re a bloody grouse! Thanks so much for what you’re doing and the fun drum times!
Loving getting my arse kicked by your silky chops.’
‘Thanks for everything over the last few months man. I’m really enjoying it and learning so much from you.’
Finn McAuley – Candar
‘Yes Yes Love it!!
This is such a great idea man. I love the community that’s building up around it.
It’s been super motivating and has really helped, so thank you. Looking forward to whatever is coming up.’
Your dedication to turning up every week and inspiring us has helped me dramatically in building a routine when it had been taken away during lockdown. Everyone is sound and it’s a great way to start a day of practice/work. I just wanted to say Thanks for all your work and letting us be involved in the journey.’
